In doing so, we can estimate the value of a variable, if we know the value of the other. This method is called regression. Lineal regression Scatter plot show the relationship between age and systolic arterial tension from 37 women. Arterial tension change with age. Re la tio n sh ip b e tw e e n a g e a n d systolic a rte ria l te n sion 50 100 150 200 250 0 50 100 A g e (ye ar s ) Systolic arteria tension (mm Hg) Plotting a regression line Our objective is to draw a line that best describes the relationship between X and Y. You can draw a line with a ruler, that joint the points, but is unlikely to get an unique line and each gives a different description of the relationship between X and Y. Relationship betw een age and hemoglobin 5 10 15 20 0 20 40 60 80 Age (years) Hemoglobin (gr/dl) Each vertical distance is the difference between the observed value for the dependent variable (in the y-axis) and the value of the line for the corresponding value of the x-axis. The vertical distance between the observed and the layout is known as residual. We call each of the residuals e1.

Gives an estimate of the average value of y for each x value. In general, we say that is a regression of y on x. We may think of the regression line as a line joining the mean values for each value of x. 5 10 15 20 0 5 10 15 Plotting a regression line The mathematical expression for the regression line equation is: y = + x where is the intersection of the line with the y axis, and is the slope of the line....
